Moving to 'devel' as discussed on

Comment 3 Peter Gordon 2007-04-09 01:36:08 UTC
I'm still getting this issue, and I noticed the following traceback when I run
it from a terminal window:

$ system-config-printer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/", line 1099,
in on_btnApply_clicked
    err = self.apply()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/", line 1110,
in apply
    return self.save_serversettings()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/", line 3109,
in save_serversettings
RuntimeError: Failed to set settings

The application continues to run, but nothing is actually changed.

Will a similar update hit Rawhide/Development soon? 


Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2007-04-11 11:20:36 UTC
Peter, this fix went into system-config-printer-0.7.53-1.fc7 so if you're still
seeing the problem it isn't completely fixed.  Are you sure you're clicking on a
printer (and getting an apply dialog) rather than just clicking the 'Apply'
button on the settings screen?

If you're clicking the Apply button on the settings screen it's a different
problem, and I would greatly appreciate a separate bug report for it..

Comment 7 Peter Gordon 2007-04-12 03:50:30 UTC

Thanks for your further inquiry. I looked into it a bit more and found out that
I couldn't even print at all! I double-checked my config files and - wouldn't
you know it - my earlier fiddling actually *was* I had accidentally
denied access to every user...How odd. Anyway, I retweaked the files to allow
access again and it seems to work as it should (from my brief testing).

Thanks for the fix!
